Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Outraged by the Vietnam War and racism in America, a group of young American radicals announced their intention to "bring the war home." The Weather Underground waged a low-level war against the U.S. government through much of the 1970s, bombing the Capitol building, breaking Timothy Leary out of prison, and evading one of the largest FBI manhunts in history.

Sing a Battle Song brings together the three complete and unedited publications produced by the Weathermen during their most active period underground, 1970 to 1974: The Weather Eye: Communiqués from the Weather Underground; Prairie Fire: The Politics of Revolutionary Anti-Imperialism; and Sing a Battle Song: Poems by Women in the Weather Underground Organization.

Sing a Battle Song is introduced and annotated by three of the Weather Undergrounds original organizers—Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn, and Jeff Jones—all of whom are all still actively engaged in social justice movement work.

Idealistic, inspired, pissed-off, and often way-over-the-top, the writings of the Weather Underground epitomize the sexual, psychedelic, anti-war counterculture of the American 1960s and 1970s.

Book News Annotation:

Three fugitives from the era--Dohrn, Bill Ayers, and Jeff Jones--compile selections from the writings of the home-grown radical anti-imperialist collective that precipitated from the anti-war and civil rights movements in the beginning of 1970 and dissolved six years later. Some of the documents are excerpted, because politicians of all stripes sometimes just go on too long. Introductions put each piece is historical and political context. There is no index.
